Managing capital assets like wastewater infrastructure requires departments to keep maintenance and ownership costs low while ensuring service levels remains high.
Wastewater industry professionals have carried on much the same during the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that essential services are getting the attention they need to provide for communities. But while the specific needs of sewer systems haven’t shifted much, the industry’s financial situation has, forcing departments across the United States to reevaluate and rebudget.

Wastewater asset management is a practice many operators use to develop long-term plans for sustaining wastewater systems and services.
With WinCan, old data isn’t lost data. WinCan’s data specialists can migrate archival sewer inspection data efficiently and accurately, regardless of its age or format, so it’s both usable and insightful.
A sewer lateral is the pipe connecting a home or business’ plumbing to the city’s sanitary sewer system. These pipes typically run underneath the house or business’ property before connecting with a larger pipe, called a sewer main, under the street or other nearby area.
It’s been called “the canary in the coal mine”: testing raw sewage for traces of the COVID-19 can help track the disease’s circulation in a community—often well before the official case count is available.
WinCan is always looking ahead at ways to integrate new technology into our software, including the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for automatic defect recognition and classification.
Our new AI toolkit, Sewermatics, helps improve operator accuracy, automatically detects defects in video inspections, assigns defect codes and auto-populates data like size, position and water level in 30 languages.
